Need For Speed: Carbon on a Nokia N73

Need For Speed CarbonLast month, one of the Forum Nokia marketing guys sent me a UK SIM so I could try out some of the cool content on the Download! catalog built into Nokia devices. It’s a shame that almost none of the great content in the Download! catalog is available with a US SIM. That topic will be for a separate post.

Meanwhile, one of the apps that struck my fancy was Need for Speed: Carbon. I used the Download! application to purchase and install this application on a Nokia N73, which uses premium SMS to pay for the content. That part of the experience was fairly transparent.

I found it difficult to execute one of the moves in this game that is necessary to win at the later levels. The gameplay overall was fairly decent, though. I think a slightly bigger d-pad would be helpful for playing these sorts of games.
